I didn't get that feeling at all.  Everything looked normal to me.  Some
shows, they'll approach each other on stage.  Pete will sometimes "invade" 
Roger's space.  And sometimes they lean on each other.

And while they weren't touchy-feely like that at the Houston '75 show, 
there didn't seem to be any tension between them.

That was a humbling, self-deprecating statement on Pete's part, acknowl-
edging that Roger is the better singer (and can remember the words!).
After Pete says it, you can hear Roger guffawing in embarrassed gratitude.
